Thompson Dock
2001, crayon, graphite
38 x 29 cm

Drawn at the head of the famous Thompson Dock. It was built in the early 20th century for the Olympic class liners Olympic, Titanic and Britannic and still works. I was able to walk down into the dock bottom and imagine the great liners sitting there on the keel blocks. Now it's all been health and safetyfied and could no longer do this. Also the view has completely changed with the Titanic Quarter development so this is an historic image.0
